The Supercars field will tackle the Surfers Paradise circuit this weekend for the Boost Mobile Gold Coast 500, staged over two 250-kilometre heats.
For the second year running it will be a single-driver affair, despite having formed part of the three-round Enduro Cup before the pandemic.

Now Mostert wants to see the Gold Coast revert to a two-driver race as well.
“As much as I'm excited to race this weekend, the one thing that is missing from this weekend is it still being an enduro event and having co drivers involved,” he said during the launch of the Optus Super Servo on the Gold Coast.
“I'd really like to still put the pressure on to try and get back to a three-round enduro [season] and have Gold Coast back there.
“It's pretty brutal on the cars, pretty brutal on the drivers. But it's a pretty cool spectacle when you have got a three-round enduro series.
“I really miss those those years where we had that because it was another little mini series, inside of [Supercars] series, to try and go for.”
The Supercars Commission will meet tomorrow with formats for 2024 likely to be on the agenda.
While he says he'd rather be battling for the title, Mostert admits that a top five and being the best Ford is something worth fighting for as well.
“I feel like in my career, I had one proper year where I was in a real good shot [at the title] and unfortunately, I ended up sitting on the couch the rest of the year,” he said, in reference to 2015 and his season-ending crash at Bathurst.
“You need [something] to tell yourself as a driver to keep yourself motivated. Even over my years when I was just trying to get into the [top] 10, or trying to get that top five position, you're always telling yourself that you'd rather have that position over than falling back.
“You've got to keep yourself motivated. If I can somehow hold on to top five in the championship for the rest of the year and have that small little glimmer of trying to beat the other Ford guys, it's always a nice little thing.”
